Museum Spotlight Lec
Museum Spotlight Lecture: Fort Pitt Museum

Tuesday, Aug. 11, 5:00-6:00
Step back in time with the Fort Pitt Museum! First opened in 1969 in a reconstructed bastion, the Fort Pitt Museum provides visitors with a rich understanding of the world-changing events that occurred right here in Western Pennsylvania. Discover how the strategic location of the fort – at the Forks of the Ohio River – helped to shape the course of American and world history, and what fun things you may see during your visit. Following the presentation there will be an opportunity to ask questions and receive personalized recommendations for what to see first!

The Fort Pitt Museum, located in historic Point State Park in downtown Pittsburgh, is a two-floor, 12,000-square-foot museum that tells the story of Western Pennsylvania’s pivotal role during the French & Indian War, the American Revolution, and as the birthplace of Pittsburgh. Through interactive exhibitions, life-like historical figures, and recently added artifacts, visitors will learn the important role our region played in shaping the United States.
